A rather graphic first-hand example of ‘how to create an anti-client’:

  • aojensen: Thanks, #telstra. Charged me with $ 59.00 for moving my antiquated POTS landline to a new address, 2 km away. 1994, anyone? // And by the way, I only chose to move and not close my #telstra subscription so that #TPG could move my ADSL2 connection. // So #TPG actually require a #telstra landline to be in place in order to test if they can deliver naked ADSL2. // And then #TPG charge me with an additional $ 59 just for relocating the ADSL2 line to another address. All up, this is nearly $ 120. // #Telstra and #TPG, you are punishing and not serving consumers. How come you punish customer loyalty? Had I known this PRIOR to moving // my landline, I would have avoided both of you, #Telstra and #TPG. In other words, you suck big time. #fail
  • alecsharp: @aojensen Be grateful for their ineptitude – you now have a Telco case study to add to the repertoire of Telco stupidity we thrive on.

A back-and-forth between Nick Gall and Chris Potts on experience-orientation in enterprise-architecture:

  • ironick: +1 tho sadly ~no conventional #entarch is exp-centric. Need #designthinking. RT @chrisdpotts: “It’s an experiences-centric architecture”
  • chrisdpotts: @ironick If conventional #entarch is falling out of step with today’s realities, then it’s time for Enterprise Architects to innovate.
  • ironick: @chrisdpotts +1. here’s how #entarch should become more experience-centric: http://bit.ly/aPYzup >pointer to Nick Gall’s ‘Hybrid Thinking’ paper, unfortunately behind Gartner paywall
  • chrisdpotts: @ironick Enterprises can design appearances. Experiences are co-created with consumer. #entarch #bizecology #valuenetworks #RecrEAtion
  • ironick: @chrisdpotts +1 exploratory co-creation is a fundamental aspect of #hybridthinking #designthinking. needs to be applied to #entarch
  • chrisdpotts: @ironick Experiences are co-created as they happen. They are emotional & depend on many live variables.  #entarch #bizecology #valuenetworks
  • ironick: @chrisdpotts +1. experiences have big emotional part. we CAN architect in advance 2 afford better co-creative exps. #hybridthinking #entarch
  • ironick: @chrisdpotts Better #entarch is 1 part #wabisabi, 1 part #bricolage, 1 part #panarchy, bound with #designthinking. result #hybridthinking

A really useful Tweet-summary, mostly by Gene Leganza, of the CIO/CMO (Chief Information Officer / Chief Marketing Officer) conference:

  • gleganza: #CIOCMO11 Keynotes getting started. Sharyn Leaver doing intros. // Sharyn comparing CIOs and CMOs to Romeo & Juliet: The indivs get along; their respective orgs & culture make it tough going // Sharyn laying out sources of competitive advantage over time… // Age of Manufacturing, Age of Distribution, Age of Info all lead to now: Age of the Customer // MPOV: Others have declared other periods the “age of the customer,” but the groundswell of social and web 2.0 make it REALLY now
  • gleganza: Bobby Cameron and Jeff Ernst taking the stage for the #Forrester keynotes at #CIOCMO11 // Title of session is “New Opportunities Emerge When Marketing & IT Focus On The Customer Life Cycle” // Bobby using modes of dress to point out the traditional differences btwn IT and Marketing people // Jeff Ernst, Marketing-related analyst, talking about the relationship btwn Marketing and IT becoming mission critical // Jeff comparing Blockbuster (bankrupt) & Netflix // “customers want less” !? // customers want less hassle, less time, less need for support // Less is more [convenience] // Tech-fueled customer-led disruption redefine the customer experience  // Bobby & Jeff: CIOs & CMOs must partner to drive customer obsession to win in the Age Of The Customer // Bobby: CMOs and CIOs are uniquely positioned to partner in driving customer obsession  // CMOs instill customer obsession across the value chain, while CIOs coordinate interactions and information across the value chain
  • joyce_hostyn: RT @forrester: RT @TomGrantForr: A big part of “The Age Of The Customer” is getting technology adoption, not just deployment. #ADF11
  • chrisdpotts: RT @forrester: Difference between IT and Marketing is imploding driven by this Age of the Customer. – Cameron #ciocmo11
  • gleganza: Case studies on CMO/CIO partnerships: Catepillar, IBM, Adidas, P&G #CIOCMO11 // Caterpillar example: Disruption from buyer behavior changes // Caterpillar: Traditional sales method — dealer in person with buyer BUT… // …now 56% buy tractors online! Major change in buying behavior, even for tractors! // So Caterpillar studied key customer touchpoints in cust experience lifecycle – IT/Marketing partnership for studying use cases
  • gleganza: IBM story-12% revenue increase year-on-year for Q1 – Whatever they’re doing, it’s working #CIOCMO11 // IBM has complex ecosystem of brands, partners, & suppliers // IBM’s VP of Order to Cash & Marketing Transformation partnered with VP of Marketing totally revamped their systems 4 customer info // Now there’s a job title…Does YOUR org have a “VP of Order-to-Cash and Marketing Transformation”?
  • gleganza: Adidas case: They target 15-25 yr olds who have to have the “new thing”  #CIOCMO11 // Adidas having to shorten their product dev cycles // Adidas CIO and CMO don’t obsess over Nike, the gorilla in their space, but on their customers // Adidas Marketing didn’t get IT issues, IT didn’t get Marketing, so for major World Cup effort, created a joint team // “social listening team” ID’ed athletes to sponsor and used social media to test campaigns
  • gleganza: P&G example: Lots of brands, in biz 174 years! #CIOCMO11 // P&G: Global CIO drove “virtual modeling and simulation services” to speed up prod dev cycle: supports product innovation // P&G used to take 6-7 weeks to do customer testing with physical mockups // P&G created virtual environment in hours or days, not weeks. // P&G has a library of shelves in a virtual library-can simulate customer experience in Target, Walmart stores
  • gleganza: Bobby and Jeff about to take questions from CIO & CMO audience #CIOCMO11 // [I’m doing a breakout session later with CIOs and CMOs to address tech planning issues; will be interesting to see the interaction]
  • gleganza: Q: What did the CIOs and CMOs really do 2 make  changes happen? A: Weekly CIO/CMO meetings generating ideas, maintaining momentum #CIOCMO11 // P&G CIO aggregated 170 common services as part of prod dev lifecycle; goal was not cost-related but all about enabling innovation
  • gleganza: Q: Role of CMO on defining priorities for program/project agenda. Role in project portfolio mgt? #CIOCMO11 // A. In P&G, funding is ongoing payment structure btwn internal customers (eg, marketing) and IT org-continued funding based on sat
  • gleganza: Q: Have analysts seen ancillary depts (HR, etc) change processes to accommodate this customer focus thing? A: Absolutely… #CIOCMO11 // …processes change to recognize ROI from all the related activity
  • gleganza: Q: Is main problem for orgs power struggles? A: Perception probs: Marketing less important than operational systems in IT’s eyes #CIOCMO11 // …IT has HAD to focus on keeping operational systems highly available. Made Marketing a second-class citizen of sorts // Bobby: so the prob is language, metrics, lots of things: it’s systemic. Solution is to make customer obsession systemic
  • gleganza: Nigel Fenwick & Luca Paderni keynote at #CIOCMO11 starting // Nigel invoking those HSBC ads to illlustrate the issue of perspective // Nigel hands off to Luca with a Dilbert cartoon showing IT’s perspective of marketing (hint-it’s not flattering) // Luca counters with an image representing Marketing’s view of IT: a snail. touche! // Luca & Nigel’s solution follows the basic people-process-technology model // People: Merge IT and Marketing. OK, not really merge the orgs,but get these ppl working together. Get left & right brains together
  • gleganza: Supervalu example: Formed joint IT/Marketing team w/shared budget & matrix reporting #CIOCMO11
  • gleganza: AB InBev example-Again, shared IT/Marketing ownership, in this case for customer retention #CIOCMO11 // Lesson: restructure teams, co-locate teams, share accountability
  • gleganza: Now the process part… #CIOCMO11 // Process focus is on time to market, speed, agility
  • gleganza: Supervalu: “Agile-like” methods, rapid prototyping (disposable solutions), 90-day value creation #CIOCMO11
  • gleganza: Nissan example-Formed marketing technology steering committee; did tech and design together via CIO/CMO collaboration #CIOCMO11 // Nissan’s result: significantly increased transparency // “Plan for fast failure”
  • gleganza: Rolls Royce example: Real-time analytics for global data on engine failures #CIOCMO11 // RR: Warnings on need for engine maintenance sent to ground crews
  • gleganza: Survey data: CIO hires staff w/marketing expertise? CIOs 33% yes, CMOs 20% yes #CIOCMO11
  • gleganza: Q: Need additional CxO to make CIO/CMO partnership work? COO? A: Yes. Starts with CIO/CMO, but gotta get to key execs #CIOCMO11 // …especially gotta get the execs with checkbooks bought in and involved
  • gleganza: Q: Culture of orgs before ‘harmonic conversion?’ A: Supervalu-traditional separation; hired new execs to make it happen #CIOCMO11 // “Cultural shift starts with leadership”
  • gleganza: Q: 90 days “a luxury” to prove value-what to do if extreme speed necessary? #CIOCMO11 // A: Short time horizon? Challenge shifts to selecting projects/pilots with more likelihood of success  // Business metrics on business outcomes are the way to measure success for BOTH IT and Marketing

A sizeable back-and-forth on my post about the (lack of) future for money:

  • tetradian: [post] The future of money is that it has no future http://bit.ly/piDi8r #economics #society #culture
  • gkathan: RT @tetradian [post] The future of money is that it has no future http://t.co/6ANZ27GZ #economics #society #culture <how to “deal” with responsibility?
  • tetradian: @gkathan re responsibility, see e.g. http://bit.ly/nGAyNO or http://bit.ly/r4tP2m or http://bit.ly/nZxpIR or http://bit.ly/q2rnYt
  • tetradian: [post] The architecture of a no-money economy http://bit.ly/poCT6W #entarch #economics #society
  • tetradian: [post] An economics challenge for enterprise-architects http://bit.ly/prtXwg #entarch #economics #society
  • chrisdpotts: @tetradian re: http://bit.ly/prtXwg Echoing my recent Tweet, each of us is an economy-of-one.  If we’re in a household, it’s a layer on top. // Being an economy-of-one, each of can use the 4 Factors of Production to create value (Land, Labor, Capital, Enterprise) #entarch
  • tetradian: @chrisdpotts agree re ‘layer on top’; less agree on ‘4 Factors of Production’, b/c in many ways they assume possession, which doesn’t work // the ‘4 Factors’ are valid, but they need a major re-think to work in a responsibility-based economy – hence this work
  • MartijnLinssen: Great post but link to #entarch confuses > RT @tetradian: An economics challenge for enterprise-architects http://bit.ly/prtXwg #entarch
  • tetradian: @MartijnLinssen why does link to EA confuse? – to me economics (esp. macroeconomics) is whole-enterprise architecture at very large scale
  • richardveryard: @chrisdpotts @tetradian I talk about the 4 factors of production in my paper on the future of money. #LongFinance http://tinyurl.com/639k3xz
  • m_vrijhoef: @MartijnLinssen @tetradian Shortest answer to the posed problem: Unified common goals, disposal of religion and value of ‘self’
  • tetradian: @m_vrijhoef agree, perhaps esp. about ‘disposal of religion’ – possession-/money-economy _is_ a dysfunctional religion (w/out morals.. 🙁 )
  • MartijnLinssen: @tetradian it was a pretty “controversial” post and I liked it, but ending references to #entarch sent me into the woods
  • chrisdpotts: @tetradian Re:  Factors of Production. The assumption of possession is in the eye of the beholder. #entarch // A #strategy that depends on a rethink of the basics of Economics has a low chance of success.
  • tetradian: @chrisdpotts I fear you miss the point here: this isn’t mainstream strategy, it’s root-economics, at least 2-3 layers deeper than strategy! // why did you introduce the red-herring of strategy? all the posts made it clear this was _not_ about strategy…?
  • rettema: @tetradian interesting timing Tom , see mckinsey quarterly #sustainable http://e.mckinseyquarterly.com/147e4fa98layfousibojkwkaaaaaabxqr5nzsp4fxj4yaaaaa
  • tetradian: @rettema many thanks for that McKinsey pointer – is a good illustration of what doesn’t/can’t work… 😐
